Any Disco DJ worth their weight in vinyl knows the name Donnell Pitman, and until now this has been mostly due to his highly sought after work of the late 70s and early 80s. Renewed interest in Donnell has reached critical peak over the past few years, fueled by Red Greg’s feature of Donnell’s seminal “Love Explosion” on Joey Negro’s Under the Influence vinyl compilation series and Chicago’s Numero Group putting out long forgotten, unreleased boogie bangers “Burning Up” and “Taste of Honey” in 2015.
It was this refreshed enthusiasm that caught the attention of producer Kumar McMillian of Chicago-based disco ensemble Wings of Sunshine. Kumar’s group was looking for another vocal collaborator following their 7” debut release on Star Creature Records. A casual introduction led to an informal studio session between the two culminating in a modern disco masterpiece.
